Mazzy Star - California Lyrics




I think I'm going back to California
Somewhere distant and it's all far away
It's so far, it's so far far away

I think I'll drift across the ocean now
Clouds look so clear in your eyes
Let me dream all my, let me dream all my friends

I think I'll fly across the ocean
I can watch the sky turning grey
I think I'm going back, I think I'll go back

I think I hear the whisper of my own best friend
I think I hear the bells ringing in the square
California, California

Mazzy Star California Comments
  1. mariotau1

    meravigliosa-----

  2. hadiordanyalanci

    Intro sounds very similar to Darling Violetta's Smaller God https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX_kez_xwJs

  3. Jonathan Veliz

    Why would anyone go back to California.

  4. Ger Delgado

    "My baby lives in shades of cool" so similar jaja
    Lana del Rey

  5. manyonezerometalsmyth 66

    Books are not Samaritans:
    Most of the evil portrayed conceptually, or in characters in the world or the media seem to me like just a bachelor fantasy from a straight guy getting away with his male prospects. I believe true evil is more perverse and unacceptable. It lies more in sicknesses of the mind or perverse act that no one really wants to accept. Good is that fruitcake with the unwanted male toys, the guy who misjudged the heaviness of the world...then, he demands the quality items from us in a final perverse act of violence and temptation.

  6. marion cobaretti

    she is so beautiful with age, pure angel . i envy her man ..............

  7. s staners

    Great song

  8. Sweet Kitty

    Her voice is similar to that of lana del rey.

  9. James I

    You should ask God to forgive you and accept Jesus to forgive you! just sayin :) James

  10. Legio XCII Corvus ⲟⲩⲱⲛϣ

    Discovered Mazzy Star back in 2011 when gears of war came out, and I have been in love with Hope Sandoval ever since.

  11. Barb Veltman

    A trip left in our head, that brings us back to reality or beyond the stars.

  12. Gabriel Ramos

    I hear the velvet goldmine California

  13. Wandering Stars

    Why do old dudes go on every video and say “I’m a 60 year old man and I like this song!” On every music video? 🤣

  14. 1 conscience 0 dimension

    this video is really well done and the music is great.

  15. Marc Giancola

    California sucks a dirty a******and the song isn't any better

  16. Barb Veltman

    This song reminds me of when I was in college and I took a road trip from Savannah Georgia to Raleigh North Carolina with some friends. We made a few stops and were high or buzzed

  17. Tag Federoff

    Looping this beautifully haunting song all day for the second day straight!!! I think I'm going to California. Let me bring all my friends. Anyone here want to go?????

  18. Cynthia Corcoran

    The singer name is Cynthia Gaga Amy .....

  19. Frecklez Love

    Super 1990s edgy wear black sing depression and act super shy and mysterious...lol and slowly run your finger over the shadows from tree...lol Lana del Rey stop copying this poor girl!!!

  20. James McKenzie

    Does anyone know if Mazzy Star has another album in progress?

    Javedur Rahman

    James McKenzie Unfortunately MS hasn’t said anything about a new album as of yet.

  21. Polish Hero Witold Pilecki

    And again pure melancholy

  22. Manuel Passerini

    That ghost outro is the best of the entire song

  23. Sil Buckley

    Lana del Rey es claramente ahora lo que fue Hope Sandoval en los 90

    1 conscience 0 dimension

    telling anal del rey is forbiden there. no insult allowed. you respect the great Hope Sandoval or you go out. ahaha

  24. MilesBellas

    they used a version of "Fade into You" on the end credits
    did you get compensation ?
    https://youtu.be/21sB27eNdGQ

  25. Marylyn D. Alvarez

    Lana and Mazzy colab! {PLEASE!!!!}

  26. Magno hustle

    Reminds me to Shades of Cool from Lana

  27. Alexander C

    Any song recommendations like this with eerie strange chord changes?

  28. Frank Lopez

    Lana Del Rey had to be influenced by Mazzy

  29. Leonardo Flores

    Beatyfull song Mazzy Star California
    Saludos desde Mexico City

  30. The_Truth

    196 people seriously need to check into their local mental health physicians for thumbs downing.

  31. Trev Mac

    ❤️️Mazzy's music

  32. In Lucem

    Esperanza (Hope) Sandoval

  33. Eszter Gergely

    Her music radiates atmosphere totally like May Jailer's (a.k.a Lana's previous works)...no, i would be more accurate, if i said May Jailer was certainly inspired by HER. It's just...pure emotions transformed into music. Makes me feel things which I didn't even experience :) .

  34. Samir Samy

    lana del rey is imitation of mazzy

    1 conscience 0 dimension

    I don't know I heard her first song not to bad. did she keep on doing music after? I heard something like her voice later but it was not music

  35. buggs carrot

    what a beautiful voice.

  36. MrDLOC11

    Sanctuary of Emmanuel Church Feb 27 2019

  37. Allison Chains

  38. Luis alfonso Garcia

  39. Paulo Ricardo

    MUITO BOM

  42. yarbles67

    vibe from their early acoustic recordings at Earls Court. Great stuff

  43. Joshua Wilkie

    With a Haunting series of Guitar Chords to initiate this piece, I am really set for this astonishing Voice too come. Hope Sandoval has the nicest, na thus an understatement. Hope Sandoval obtains a voice rare as the absolute Beauty thus contained. Not at all intending to take away from the absolute Musicality of this Piece, I just could not help My overwhelming appreciation of just how Beautiful Hope Sandoval Be. I am so ever into the Musicality portrayed with Mazzy Star, they have a huge even if Years late Fan in Me. The Guitar I will mention again, when using dynamics sustains that haunting feel of the opening passage; Great expression Man!_!I-i!_! Thank You Mazzy Star.)'
    PEACE. LOVE. RESPECT

  51. AdventuresOfTheKanFam

  52. Joshua Velazquez

    I didn’t know she was Mexican American dope 💪🏽🇲🇽🇺🇸

    Allison Chains

    Makes you feel some type of amazing emotion that's undesirable, doesn't it? 😊💖

    "California"

    I think I'm going back to California
    Somewhere distant and it's all far away
    It's so far, it's so far far away

    I think I'll drift across the ocean now
    Clouds look so clear in your eyes
    Let me dream all my, let me dream all my friends

    I think I'll fly across the ocean
    I can watch the sky turning grey
    I think I'm going back, I think I'll go back

    I think I hear the whisper of my own best friend
    I think I hear the bells ringing in the square
    California, California

  73. David Bone

  85. CharliePhoto Fernandes

    Love Mazzy Star's music, they have a unique psychedelic sound, and Hope''s voice is ethereal. I read an article on a music magazine where they describe their music as Post Coital, best description ever.

  86. The Clumsy Girl

    California"

    I think I'm going back to California
    Somewhere distant and it's all far away
    It's so far, it's so far far away

    I think I'll drift across the ocean now
    Clouds look so clear in your eyes
    Let me dream all my, let me dream all my friends

    I think I'll fly across the ocean
    I can watch the sky turning grey
    I think I'm going back, I think I'll go back

    I think I hear the whisper of my own best friend
    I think I hear the bells ringing in the square
    California, California

  87. Allison

    Lana del Ray is such a copy cat

  90. Clara Sheeran

    I used to make my children listen to mazzy star/ Hope now they are young adults and love her and her vibe

  91. Carolina Ruizt

    Why some of your Music is prohibited in Mexico?? Is just so racist.

  92. Stephen Roberts

    I am a 72 year old geezer in Missouri who found this beautiful voice over a year ago. She"s Mazzy and I an amazed. Love her.

    Bryce Tyson

    Stephen Roberts check out Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions also. The woman singing in Mazzy Star is Hope Sandoval. And she also has another band. You will love them too.
